Merry Christmas!

What a WONDERFUL Christmas!!!  This has been one of the best that I can remember in a long time, and I know it’s because we spent time truly focusing on the birth of Christ and doing things for others.  We are soooo blessed and it was fun sharing just a tiny bit of that joy with “strangers.”

Our favorite activity this year was sharing “Random Acts of Kindness” with people in our community.  I can’t take any credit for the idea…I totally copied the ideas and printables from Pinterest 🙂 .  Justin declared that this would definitely be a new yearly tradition and the kids loved it too!


Another FUN activity was our “tacky sugar cookie sweater” contest (this may be a new tradition too) 🙂 :



Nice “photo bomb” Ryan 🙂 !!!



On Christmas Eve we attended a Christmas service at church and  spent the evening at my Mom and Dad’s house:

 THANK YOU to our family and friends for the cards, goodies, hugs, joy, and laughter that you shared with us! 

We love you all very much!
